Wow! My first listen was through the computer, and well, I was not impressed. But when I heard it in my car this morning I was blown away! This is some of the coolest stuff I've heard in a while! There are so many incredible sounds happening with this lineup! I recommend this to any fan of any musician in this lineup! How much better can you get? - Steve, Fishman, Trevor Garrod, Samantha, Stone, Reid....WOW!

I wasnt at snoe.down tho I really wished i had gone, the trip from VA was just a little too intimidating for me. I had read a bit about Everyone Orchestra - very cool concept and this is a good show to get the gyst of the way things flow. And of course its a Jon Merin recording, so you can trust it.

Merin's recording is just a shade bit better than Rob Clarke's recording which is also here. Both recordings are very good and it may just be personal preference on my part, but I think Merin's recording is a little more full-bodied and has a bit more presence than Clarke's. The good quality on both recordings is a testament to the excellent sound system at snoe.down this year.
This is a fun show and it was great to be in the audience and play along with the antics on stage. My two regrets are that Fishman did not sing anything or play the vacuum and that Kimock did not let loose like he did in the AOD set. Well, maybe that is three regrets. In any event this was fun stuff and snoe.down was a great, great festival. Thanks to both Merin and Clarke for making available 2 great sources for this set for the entire festival.
